Do you own washi tape?  I really have fun with it. Really!  It’s just so pretty. The possibilities are endless with this decorative tape.  You can even label stuff with it.  Who would’ve thought?…Like my kids’ cups or snack bags, etc.  Well, my friend Tanja from Journey of a Substitute Teacher is here today with  a fun little washi project.


Hey everyone!

I’m so thrilled to be here on April’s blog and sharing ideas with you!

I’m addicted to washi tape. If you haven’t heard of washi tape, it’s like decorative masking tape. It’s super easy to use and pretty easy to remove! You can use it to decorate and create just about anything.

Today’s craft that I’m sharing, uses washi tape to spice up little notes to students. What kind of notes? Maybe it’s the student’s birthday. Or they need a pick me up (we all need those sometimes right?). Even better, you’re out and have a substitute, so you can leave little reminders to be on their best behavior! But plain white paper is…well…plain! So let’s spruce it up with some washi tape fun!

What you’ll need:

*Washi Tape

*Cardstock (or you can use scraps of whatever paper, but cardstock works best).

*Writing utensil (I used pencil, but pen/sharpies work just as well!)

My cardstock ready to go and be washied!

So many choices for washi!



An example of sprucing up a little scrap of paper. Positive reinforcement or a pick me up!


Have a substitute? No sweat!

Quick, simple, and easy. But oh so very important to students who need that extra little boost of encouragement. I can’t wait to share more washi in the classroom ideas! Do you washi?
